New Chair of Board appointed for South Liverpool Homes
Published: 25 September 2020
South Liverpool Homes (SLH) is delighted to announce David Jepson as the new Chair of the Board.
David takes over from Steve Jennings who stood down at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) on 24 September 2020 following a maximum nine years on the Board. David is no stranger to the organisation, having served on the Board since 2016 when he joined as Vice Chair. He is a committed housing professional with over 30 years’ experience of social housing and has held a number of high-profile positions including Deputy Chief Executive at Riverside and as interim chief executive in a number of other housing associations including Gentoo.
David said, “I am extremely proud to serve as Chair for South Liverpool Homes and steer them through the final years of our corporate plan whilst working with the Board and executive to develop a new five year strategy which helps us build on our current homes and services.
“It’s an absolute honour to take the reins from Steve Jennings, with whom I have worked closely as SLH have transformed their services to meet the needs of their customers. SLH has made excellent progress towards building 225 new homes by 2021 and I am excited to see SLH deliver on this programme, which will complement the existing homes in the area.
“There are undoubtedly challenging times ahead for the sector and SLH’s customers, however the Board is committed to working alongside SLH’s Executive Management Team to help tenants navigate through these challenges whilst continuing to deliver excellent services.”
Julie Fadden, Chief Executive of South Liverpool Homes, said “Firstly, I’d like to thank Steve Jennings for his contribution to South Liverpool Homes. He has helped steer SLH through change and transformation over the past nine years and leaves the organisation well placed to grow and achieve our future ambitions.
“David’s extensive experience in the housing sector and his commercial acumen has, and will continue to be, an asset to SLH as he becomes Chair. He is passionate and committed to the communities of Speke and Garson and will be influential in helping SLH achieve the strategic priorities set out in our corporate plan.”
